  Science (47th place worldwide)

Moreover, the UvA is in the top 50 for the disciplines Economics & Econometrics and Accountancy & Finance, which rank 44th and 45th place respectively. This means that the UvA ranks in the international top-50 in seven fields of study.

QS rated fields of study within the categories:
 Social Sciences
 Engineering & Technology

 Arts and Humanities

Of the 21 UvA disciplines studied, 20 rank in the top 100.

The QS World University Rankings by Subject are based on academic reputation, employer reputation, and research citations. The weighting of these three criteria varies per field of study.
